CANTON, Ohio – TIREMAAX® PRO, a revolutionary product for automatic inflation and precise maintenance of trailer tires was unveiled in August 2010 by Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems. TIREMAAX PRO continues to make news as it makes its television debut on Fox Sports Network’s top rated national television series “Motorhead Garage” on Sunday, July 31, 2011 at 11:30 AM EST. Check local listings for times and availability.

The popular show will feature TIREMAAX PRO as part of a series of Big Rig episodes focusing on tractor trailer safety and fuel savings technologies. Fox SportsNetwork will also run a repeat airing of the episode Monday, August 1 at 4:30 PM EST in most areas.

“Motorhead Garage was looking for an innovative trailer product that tackles the major concerns affecting the industry today – cost savings, fuel economy and safety,” says Scott Fulton, director of new product development at Hendrickson Trailer. “TIREMAAX PRO offers a solution to these issues by decreasing the amount of time and money fleets spend due to improperly inflated tires.”

TIREMAAX PRO is the first automatic tire inflation system in the trailer industry that is capable of actively inflating or relieving the tires to a preset pressure level. Its straightforward mechanical design balances tire pressure at every wheel position by continuously monitoring and adjusting tire pressure based on changing environmental conditions – an important feature for achieving maximum tread life in any tire configuration.

With robust components and no electronics, transducers or pressure switches, TIREMAAX PRO is versatile and easy to install and maintain. It may be combined with an array of Hendrickson-approved wheel-end configurations on any INTRAAX® primary suspension system, VANTRAAX® slider suspension system or TRLAXLE trailer axle.
